    It's been mentioned here about how Howard said that relatively recently. I believe he said it to purposefully lose his fan base. The fan base that shouts 'bababooey' and calls in to radio and tv shows to mention him in an offensive way. There were many ways that the fan base involved him in celebrity mockery. By getting the fans to feel betrayed, he believes they will no longer do these things. This, in turn, will allow an easier transition to the overdone celebrity interview-only format. But without that fan base, who is going to give half a rat's ass about another PC celeb interview? This make sense to others around here?

    I think you're giving him too much credit. He's probably so lost in his maze of narcissism that he really doesn't have a clear and rational view of the consequences of any of his actions.

    Then he continues to act like he needs to keep working to make sure he has enough cash to retire. Even bababooey claims he himself doesn't have enough to retire on. I know retired engineers and firemen who have comfortable lifestyles even after paying off the mortgage and sending kids through college recently. The attention whoring and greed is something else with this Howard Stern. The weird looking old wife. At least get a young trophy wife. Maybe he's just one of those males who can't get a hot chic even with the money and status. I really don't even know where to end this rant so I'll just do it now.

    He made a conscious effort to change the show to win over the Hamptons crowd (and then the A List Hollywood crowd), but I think Howard just assumed his fans would just fall into line and adore the New Howard and Show. He freaked out when fans turned on him and made the "piss on his fans comments". Now he just encases himself in a bubble of sycophants and "Yes" men so he thinks he is universally adored.

    THIS***

    Mainstream success has always been his endgame.

    His old fanbase doesn't want mainstream content, and the mainstream audience doesn't want him.

    He painted himself into an impossible corner.

    Yeah, a lot of people expect their retirement lifestyle to be the same as when they are actively earning.

    And rich guys who continue to marry fug are just pathetic.

    (I think nobody hot wanted him.)

    You're giving him too much credit. I doubt he was being that calculating. When's the last time Howard suffered any major consequences for a rant? For the "piss on my fans" comment, if i recall correctly, he was ranting at Sirius regarding the non-inclusion of XM subscribers in his bonus.

    Howard on-air will say whatever makes him sound cool, funny, crafty, wise, unfairly victimized, tough, or noble...or whatever provides filler to get him to the four hour mark. He's not held accountable for it to any significant degree. On the rare occasion his yes-men inner circle can't prevent criticism from reaching him, Howard will lie, bluster, bully, spin, deny, deflect or ignore -- also without consequence.

    He does what he does because he gets away with it on a consistent basis.

    that would be genius of him to lose millions of subscribers for Sirius.

    He knew we will all come back when he introduces the world to his new venture Sim Cards.

    Or maybe he was so arrogant and dumb that he thought he could say anything he wanted and keep his fans. He doesn't need them for his 10 years at Sirius, but he will need them eventually and we won't be here. It's not that his former fans don't like him anymore, they hate what he has become.

    He doesn't acknowledge or credit his fans, he is so arrogant that he thinks he made it on his own without them.

    Sirius were suckers that fucked up his show, no ratings, no problems. No effort.

    There's a reason people don't "Janks" cable news and "Booeys" are prevalent only at the PGA

    ...the remaining people who GAF are old.

    He did a great job alienating the next generation, on a new tech platform, but then he got on the ship after it had been sailing.

    Willy Best, I have no idea why he's mad at me. I must have disagreed with a post of his once. You know how childish people are. I would bet you he doesn't know why either, that's how sick people function.

    the other is Kanye, he's just a troll.

    I don't even care, it's work for them. They have to check my profile and look thru my postings to neg rep me. Kanye is not allowed here so I think he can only neg me on Bar threads.
